On the way back we met some people who forgot the route and we took them along. We reached back Ghangaria at 5:30 pm and were extremely hungry as we had no food since morning. I met Shazad at his place, got some snacks that I ate sitting in his salon. I took him along to my room, I got to know him better and we had dinner together. Later I called my mom to atleast stop the police investigation.History was going to repeat itself the next day just in the same manner as was my DAY 1 of the trip, its very thought made me sleep.DAY 4Meeting Shazad and his family before parting was the first thing I did in the morning. Reshma also had to go back to Rishikesh the same day. I packed my bag, checked out of the hotel and hugged Ashok bhaiya for all the help he offered me apart from the comfortable stay and he gave me a raincover for the way back. Shazad walked with us leaving his shop open till the exit of Ghangaria.With only one thing in mind to reach to the bike in Pulna, we started to walk. I didn't want to stop long anywhere in the mid neither was I getting tired or feeling breathless. We just walked and walked smiling at other people who were going Ghangaria and looked miserable.
My morning began at 9 am with a hot cup of tea that Ashok, the hotel manager gave me for free. I got ready for trek to the Valley of Flowers, my only jacket was wet from the day before when I went to Sri Hemkunt Sahib so I borrowed a rain coat from Ashok. I went to gurudwara Gobind Dham to meet Reshma who was my trekking partner and also collected some medicines from the dispensary for body pain and cough and cold.
Getting late was now becoming a habit to me. The morning was cold when I woke up at 6 and the quilt was heaven on Earth so I enjoyed the heavenly pleasure of sleeping 3 more hours. By nine I finally decided to get on feet but as soon as I did I felt a pinching pain in my right thigh and with each step it would grow stronger.I kept my luggage in the cloak room in Gobind Dham Gurudwara, Shazad got me a mule for 500 bucks that would take me to Sri Hemkunt Sahib which is a 6 Km trek from 10,000 feet to 15,200 feet.Hundreds of pilgrims go to the Gurudwara on foot each day, the mule made it a lot easy for me. The trek's inclination is more than the maximum of a treadmill. In every 10 mins I would scale up to a new height and the weather would only get colder.
